Help! Terrible work flow

I have a very big problem when using photoshop. For example, I have a photo to restore that is call Gerald.psd. I had noticed along the way of the restoration there are about twenty Gerald .psd with different extension. I'm having some problems with just keeping one Gerald.psd and have a chain of levels, curves etc. in the layers pallette for that photo, eg. Background, Backgroundcopy, Layer 1, Adjustment Layer)Hue Saturation etc. (depends on the type of restoration for the particular photo. Can someone please give me some information how to avoid this problem.

Question Re: Help! Terrible work flow

Can you clarify a little bit? Do the extra files have "copy" attached to the file names? Are they all .psd files? Are you saving them with "save as" or with "save"?

Yes, all the files have psd at the end, also, I'm saving them as "save as".

Whenever you choose "save as", Photoshop will ask you to give this file a name. Unless you give it the same name as the original (thus overwriting the original), you will be creating a new file each time.
If you don't want to create a new file, just select "save" from the menu.

Re: Help! Terrible work flow

Thanks for the tip on how to save my photo files. I had seen some of your colorized photo, girl, those were excellent. I had read a thread a long time ago and it mentioned that the best way to colorize a photo is to use different shades of color on the skin. How do you colorized a black and white photo using different shades of color?. Can you please tell me the technique that you had used to colorized those photo. The colorizing looks very realistic.
